Hi Amanda! Welcome home!
I saw you guys at the Coral Reef on Friday! I even pointed you out to hubby and told him you were the one who gave me B-day sign idea! I was going to go over and say hi then you guys walked by and you were gone! Did you get in early? The kids were cute with there embroided mickey ears! The sign was great! The diver kept blowing me kisses! I think he did yours about 10 mins after mine,,we were sitting in the same booth area..
I thought WDW was too hot and humid and WAY too busy for Sept! it wasnt anything like that last Sept! BTW,,How did thursday go with taking the kids to the waterpark? What happened with Jasons meeting?

Ok Where was I ... Oh Yeah Day 2

So after getting in late (11pm) we slept in till around 9 am and the kids told us they were ready to go to pop !!

So we got up took showers and got dressed .. We checked out and headed over to clermont Thats where we used to live and went to walmart..

HINT For those driving if you need to go to walmart don't go to the kissimmee walmart, the clermont one on 27 is much closer to disney and much nicer.

So we went to walmart to get cokes & water and snacks for the mornings.

So we get done there and we start heading over to resort .

Then the kids see the signs ... push to watch ..very funny!!


Then We see this

We park and head in ..

We get to the checking in line that was only 3 familys deep

We get called up to check in
Crystal Says "hold on you don't have a room # yet like everyone else... "
Me Thinkin = Hmmm Maybe a upgrade Maybe... please give me a dream upgrade... hee hee you know you would be thinking the same thing...
Crystal ( the cast member name ) "Let me find out whats going on with your room , I see you asked for the 50's area .."
Me - "Yes I would love also a 1st floor please .."
Crystal - "ok let me call and see if i can find out "

So crystal picks up the phone and calls someone
Me thinking .. hmmm Maybe a upgrade ???
Crystal talks to the person on the phone and hangs up
Crystal says " Ok you will have a 1st floor room in the 50's not sure which one yet, so call around 1 pm and you can get that info. but here is your room cards your 6 day park hopper tickets and dinning plan are on here also

so we say thank you and walk away with no upgrade oh well but aleast we got a 1st floor room in 50's woo hoo..

We walk outside and i get hit with the best Idea ......

Ok Warning ... If you are one of those flammers that gets upset very easy please stop here .. Don't read anymore because i don't want to hear your flames..... everyone else please keep reading

Ok where was I Oh Yeah I got hit with a great idea ..
Me = "Jason give me your drivers license"
Jason "ok " He pulls it out , hands it over
Me "Jason We still have our florida license"
Jason "so ?"
ME " Do you know what that means "
Jason " what ?"
ME " We can get season passes "
Jason " but we already bought park tickets "
ME "Yes but we can upgrade them , so when we move back in a few months we will have season tickets already "
Jason " ok lets do it "

So we jump on the epcot bus..

we go up to Guest Relations
and they upgraded our tickets Plus gave us a $100. refund .. how cool is that ...

While at Guest Relations a man from the dream team comes up and give the kids dream Pins
Our 1st dream and we are not even in the park yet ....


By this time we are hungry - and with free food there is no need to be hungry so we head to pepper market

We sit down and was asked what drinks we would like
Jason "tea"
Me "Coke"
James "sprite"
Alexis "Coke"
They go get it

while i head over to get our food
James & Alexis both wanted pizza

James Really liked it and ate it all gone

But Alexis Hated it

Jason got the Beef Fajita Platter served with black beans and rice

He really liked it .. he said it was better then it looked ...
I got the Ribeye Steak with 2 types of Potatos

mine was so good ... Mmmmmm

and then after jason got

I got


Overall It was a great counter service meal
the bill came to around $86
we paid $0 - thanks disney for free dining!!

after eatting we went outside


We sat around and took some photo's while we made a plan ..




by this time it was around 2pm so we called and got our room #
so we jumped on the waterpark bus- then from there jumped on the pop bus

finally back at pop we found our room .. It was a great room it was in the best spot too ..

we put our bags in the room and headed over to epcot for a few hours before our dinner with mickey mouse

We got to epcot and photo pass people took some cute photos of us


We walked over to test track and the stand by wait time says 45 mins
so we went in anyways
it only took 20 mins to get to loading pad, by this time it was raining outside
and they had stop the ride. so we sat and sat and I telling james & alexis
Me "Its better to be inside here then outside there getting wet "
So we sat inside for ahour or so and then they started the ride again
We get on... it was Alexis 1st time on test track She was saying Woo hoo the whole time .. she loved it !!


then after we headed over to nemo
to ride nemo, see crush and look at the fish


By this time its around 6 so we headed out ..

its was almost time for dinner with mickey ...

Next Our dinner with Mickey .......

We had 1160 first floor at the end of the lady building parking lot side. It was great as the bowling pin pool was right around the corner, easy to get to our rental car, and the walk to Everything POP was about 2 minutes! We have been in Tramp first floor far end and on the 3rd floor of Tramp (you can see I like the 50's buildings!) and I just loved this location best. Again I didn't have little kids as this trip was just my DD who's 26 and myself so the location was quiet and perfect for us
